John Gay

Fill ev'ry glass, for wine inspires us,
And fires us
With courage, love and joy.
Women and wine should life employ.
Is there ought else on earth desirous?More John Gay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
"I cannot raise my worth too high;
Of what vast consequence am I!"
"Not of the importance you suppose,"
Replies a Flea upon his nose;
"Be humble, learn thyself to scan;
Know, pride was never made for man."More John Gay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Those who in quarrels interpose, Must often wipe a bloody nose.More John Gay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But his kiss was so sweet, and so closely he pressed, that I languished and pined till I granted the rest.More John Gay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When if or chance or hunger's powerful sway
Directs the roving trout this fatal way,
He greedily sucks in the twining bait,
And tugs and nibbles the fallacious meat.
Now, happy fisherman; now twitch the line!
How thy rod bends! behold, the prize is thine!More John Gay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
